White Party Week – November 23-27

How about partying for a week to join the fight against HIV/AIDS? Nightclubs, bars and lounges will erupt with excitement to help raise funds for Care Resource, an AIDS service organization, during this five-day gala. Tens of thousands turn up every year for this oldest and largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser, not only for the nonstop partying, but also the chance to make a difference. This year, we have the National Hotel in Miami Beach playing the official host hotel.

Thanksgiving Day – November 23

Various venues across Miami

Although Thanksgiving is best spent with loves ones, it doesn’t mean it has to be spent at home. For those looking to save themselves the hassle of cooking, make a reservation to any of these restaurants in advance. Fleming’s Steakhouse is starting its prix fixe feast early at 11 a.m. Seasons 52 and StripSteak by Michael Mina are serving a traditional, family-style dinner. You’ll also find an exceptional spread at the buffet from Fontainebleau’s Vida.
 
Counting calories? Get in a day of activity before Thanksgiving. Try a Gables Bike Tour on November 19 to not only explore City Beautiful, but also get in a casual workout. Or, plan a day of hiking at the Everglades, as the dry season brings back migratory birds and makes alligators easier to spot. Better still, head to the Bal Harbour Shops, Aventura Mall, Dadeland Mall or Southland Mall for some sensational Black Friday shopping.
